Eternal Winter

Hi, I'm Mary McComish AKA "mary in june", a self-proclaimed music junkie who hails from Calgary, Canada. I have a diploma in Print Journalism from Lethbridge College. Writing, photography, music and social media are some of my greatest passions and would love to work more in that field. Feel free to browse through my portfolio! Feel free to hit me up on twitter or shoot me an email! I'm always open to talk to people interested in my work.

Hero worship continued

I know I’ve already blogged about hero worship and why it’s problematic but due to recent events, I feel that it needs to be brought up again. Honestly, I’ll probably be speaking about this topic until the day I die.

I’ve discussed Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie and his problematic behaviour, I’ve discussed Ian Watkins and how he conned underage female fans into sleeping with him and letting him abuse their children.

Dallas Buyers Club: Fact or fiction?

I haven’t watched the Oscars in a couple of years so I decided to do so last night. Overall, it was fun. Frozen won best animated feature and best song, Idina Menzel did an outstanding performance of Let It Go from the film, Pharrell performed his song Happy from Despicable Me 2, adorned in his familiar brand of hat (I’m obsessed with his hats, fo’ real).

Let’s love

Valentine’s Day is coming up and dragging everyone through a day filled with red and pink and mushy displays of love and affection. For us single ladies, this day can be seen as a nightmare. We re-name the day Single’s Awareness Day and joke about spending the night on the couch in our pajamas, gorging on a carton of Ben & Jerry’s.

We frown at the happy couples and call the day a “Hallmark holiday,” a day that purely exists to result in big sales of roses and chocolate for stores and corporations. I mean, why only celebrate the love for your significant other one day when you should be celebrating it every day, right?

Making the wrong people famous

Promoter Damon Feldman is putting together a celebrity boxing match set to take place March 1 and the “celebrity” involved in the match is George Zimmerman.

You remember George Zimmerman, right? Zimmerman’s the guy who murdered Trayvon Martin, a defenseless 17-year-old, in cold blood back in 2012. How he followed this teenager who was only armed with a bag of skittles and a can of juice.
